Glass breaks. In location, in transit and on the factory floor and where it does, it has the potential to cause serious injury, especially if it’s handled incorrectly, including severe cuts and other serious injuries. Legislation governing the handling of broken glass it is covered as part of wider guidance under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
Bohle Emergency Repair Film, has been specially developed to provide a fast and cost effective short-term repair to broken window glass, doors, partitioning and glass mirrors. It uses a semi-rigid extremely tough polyester film combined with a high-performance solvent-free acrylic adhesive permanently bond the glass.
Applied without the use of specialist tools, the adhesive side is lined with glassine coated paper and a printed grid pattern on the outer side to help cut the film to size. Delivering one third of the tensile strength of steel, full weather sealing and 85% light transmission, it’s ideal for temporary repairs stabilizing and making broken glass safe.
Dave Broxton, Managing Director of Bohle, said: "If you think about the alternative – boarding broken windows – there are a wealth of benefits. As the end user, you aren’t left in the dark looking at a board. It can also be applied without specialist tools, there’s no hammering or noise so no disruption if working at night or in the workplace. It allows you and other people to get on with their day, while full repairs are planned and scheduled. The other major benefit is that when it does come to permanent repair, in most cases glass can be removed as a single unit and using a standard vacuum suction lifter.”
